the above photo was taken around 2007. The store changed owners in February of 2014 and then, again, on January 1st of 2016, with familiar faces behind the counter ! The new owners are still calling it the Creston Country Market and Deli, with mostly the same menu and store layout.  Excellent food and friendly service, plus a mini-market.  They have on hand some delicious cookies, pastries, and brownies (baked in house) ::::  check out the counter ! They also bake Pizza to order. The coffee service and soft drink dispenser has been moved to the back of the store and there is a nice table that seats four.
